Those aren't technically Integrities, they are the 860 series. They sound different too:
Remember: Fire alarms are serious and should not be ignored.

Pretty sure those alarms are the series between the 890 and the 790 series.

You're both right--I did a little online research and that is definitely an Edwards 860-series horn/strobe device, even though it is akin to an Integrity. This was most likely designed for special applications.

At my school in the main building, we have SpectrAlert Advances, Fire-Lite SD355T smoke detectors, and Fire-Lite BG-12LX pull stations. The other building is the same, except it has older generation Wheelock AS instead of the SpectrAlert Advances.

You mean the ones that are vertical?

Today, I finally figured out that for the Cerberus Pyrotronics alarms, the ones with the thicker backboxes were horn/strobes and the ones with thinner ones were strobes. Should have figured this out way earlier lol...

They’re extended out the walls sort of like blocks if you were wondering what i meant.
